Tricks at Six! Support LAB's 6th Season of innovative programs in 2021-22
Consider a gift to Los Angeles Baroque, now in its sixth season! Make our 2022 goals a reality. LAB is a weekly learning environment where musicians of all levels can come together for expert in-person small group coaching, "big band" training sessions and more. It is Los Angeles’s only community program for orchestral Baroque study.
Los Angeles Baroque needs your support to thrive more than ever before.
Give Six! $60, $160, $260, $600 or any amount to continue LAB in 2022.
We truly value our Angels—those who contribute $300 or more. These lead donors are typically listed in our printed programs and offered priority seating at our concerts. Once formal concerts restart LAB Angels will be acknowledged, irrespective of the season, in our printed programs. However, donations in any amount are gratefully accepted.
When you contribute you are giving vital support to:
-LAB's Orchestra Program, the largest ever in Fall 2021, offered to college students studying Baroque performance practices, professional musicians who play modern instruments and want to learn how to play early music, and devoted amateurs to whom this music speaks so deeply;
-LAB's Scholarship Program, which each year allows six young people to enter the world of early music;
-LAB's Chamber Music Program, which introduces those who sign up for it to the vast repertoire of chamber music written between 1600 and 1750;
-LAB's Consort Club, started in the summer of 2021, offering viol players the chance to explore the rich world of consort music in a coached environment;
-LAB's Library Program. Through a rigorous audition process, the Los Angeles Public Library has tapped us for its L.A. Made program, and in the coming season we will play in libraries throughout Los Angeles County;
-LAB's After Hours Events, for friends and family, allowing us to dip our toes back into performing as we look to re-instate concerts in the Sanctuary of our home, St. James’, South Pasadena, in 2022;
-LAB's Music Ministry Program. We offer our artistic services to St. James’ music outreach program and their holiday services.
We operate as a subsidiary of Jack Ryan Music LLC. Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Aside from members' dues we currently rely almost entirely on LAB's annual fund drives to fund our activities. Help us continue to bring meaningful, restorative early music experiences to greater LA's musicians and communities, and beyond!
Thank you for your ongoing support.
